What Do I Need to Build a Skateboard?

In: Build a Skateboard, How To

Warehouse Skateboards is your one-stop-shop for all things skateboards. We carry all of the tools and parts you need to build a custom skateboard. Building a custom complete should be existing—not stressful. Here’s all the good stuff you’ll need to build a complete skateboard:

Skateboard Deck

Skateboard Trucks (two trucks)

  • You’ll need two skateboard trucks to mount the underside of your skateboard to keep your wheels and bearings safely attached. Warehouse Skateboards carries skateboard trucks in lots of sizes and colors, and we have a huge selection of your favorite skateboard brands

Skateboard Wheels (four wheels)

  • Y’all know what skateboard wheels are for, but do you know that sizes and durability levels determine how fast you can go? Check out our skateboard wheels buying guide to learn more about diameter and durometer.

Skateboard Bearings (Two per wheel, eight total)

Skateboard Hardware (set of eight bolts and nuts)

  • Hardware connects skateboard trucks to the skateboard deck. Hardware is sold in sets of eight, but you can always purchase parts individually as needed. Our skateboard hardware selection has the sizes and colors from the brands to you. Stock up!

Skateboard Grip Tape

  • Straightforward, and you know it. Get the traction and grip you need to stay on your board! Most riders rely on brand preference—no technical info here!

Riser Pads (Set of two)

  • No one wants to wipe out. Wheel bite (what happens when you don’t have riser pads!) suddenly stops the wheel’s motion. You can pick whether or not you want to user riser pads for your skateboard—but keep in mind that riser pads give you extra pop!

Phase Two Scooters

In: Scooters

Aside from its sleek design and quality, one of the coolest things about Phase Two Scooters is that each scooter is designed and tested by Phase Two staff, who are all crazy freestyle riders. They go nuts for this sport and know what we’re looking for in a scooter. Their goal is to introduce this way of life to all types of people and skill levels, so they design scooters like the super popular Dirt and Beggs for hardcore pros AND beginners. Phase Two Scooters sells pre-assembled scooter completes as well as individual parts you can customize. We’re big fans of making things our own, and had a blast putting together different parts.

 

Now if only we could get this type of air:
